Oct 29, 2015Now, for the first time, Multitom Rax makes it possible to take 3D images under the patient's natural weight bearing condition.1 3D images can be made of all areas of the body with the patient seated, lying down or standing. Images taken while the patient is standing are essential because for example knees, pelvis and spinal column appear differently under the influence of the patient's body weight compared to when the patient is lying down. As a result, 3D images acquired by Multitom Rax offer better diagnostic and planning certainty compared to those that do not reflect a natural weight bearing condition. Conventional 2D x-rays, for example, do not always reveal fine hairline fractures in the bone. If a bone fracture is suspected, it has previously been necessary to take a 3D image using a CT system to be sure of the diagnosis. With Multitom Rax, however, a 3D image can be taken at the same system, and so the patient does not have to wait for a further appointment or to be transferred to the CT unit.
